I popped for the Triton track saw while at Rockler a couple of weeks ago. There were a couple of factors. First was a ragged cut on some BB ply using my usual method. I just won't horse a sheet of BB through the table saw anymore. Second, I use the 60x60 inch sheets, and the other saws only offer 54 inch and 199+ inch tracks. Triton offers the 54, but also a set of 2, 27 inch tracks you can join. This give me 81 inches of track. A manageable length with plenty of room to clamp (I know they have gooey bottom layers, but I'm a belt and suspenders kind of guy). My 4 inch DC has a connector for my 35mm hose that connects to the Triton. BTW, Triton has a pretty decent dust collection system itself. The other deciding factor for me is the quality and thoughtful design of Triton products. Finally, as great as Festools are--and they are great--they are just onreasonably high priced for me. But Festool would probably come with a divorce in my household.
And I like the gold color better than the pale green. How's that for shallow?
The Triton has a router adapter and relatively econmical miter gate. Triton has surpassed the Makita in overall flexibility and accessories.
Dewalt has a good track saw but they made every propriety.
There's dozens of 3 party accessories available for the Triton, Makita and Festool.
I have look at the types of projects I'm doing. The Triton has the edge over the Festool for miter and bevel cuts more common in furniture design.
The top of the line Festool has the performance with thick cuts that would be impossible. I don't have any projects that will require it.
A lot word working magazines needs redo their tests to include the newest version of the Triton. I would hold it's own against the Festool 55.
I'm slowly buying the Router Incra Table a piece of two at a time from Amazon.
I think the track saw will make life easier when breaking down the hardwood plywood for the interior of the cabinet and drawers.
My Dewalt 7491 Table Saw can handle 32 inches. It works well with fir or birch plywood.
I couldn't image trying to break down a large piece of heavy oak, maple, or walnut plywood with a 7491's tiny table top.
That's were the track saw comes to the recuse.
I keep reading post about guys modifying circular saw for the job. Most circular saws are contractor grade and would make a huge mess out of any laminate or veneers.
